In the 1840s when Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford started taking tea with a light meal in the middle of the afternoon, little did she know she was starting a tradition that would become so popular or last so long.
The habit of taking an hour in the afternoon to share tea, sandwiches, cakes and conversation with friends is often limited to weekends or tea rooms today. However it is so ingrained in our culture that many visitors to the UK are amazed to find that everything doesn’t stop for Tea every afternoon.
To ensure that when you do want to find time for the Afternoon Tea moment, we have designed a perfect blend for the occasion.
Based on a light pungent Ceylon we have added a little Assam to give it some thickness and deliver a tea for you to enjoy with your pastries and cakes.
